Meizu is completing 15 years in 2018, and to mark the big occasion, the Chinese OEM is contemplating launching two new smartphones – aptly named Meizu 15 and Meizu 15 Plus.
Meizu 15 and 15 Plus
There have been numerous regarding the said smartphones over the last couple of weeks. And today, we are treated to three hands-on images showing the Meizu 15 and 15 Plus in full glory.
As noticeable in the image above, the Plus model will be unsurprisingly Plus-sized. Both of them feature a centered front camera above the display whereas the home button sits below it. They sport metal exterior with dual rear camera aligned vertically in the upper-middle part. Under them is Meizu’s classic ring-shaped LED flash.
Coming to specifications, the Plus variant sports a 5.95-inch QHD display, 12 MP + 20 MP resolution for those rear cameras, a 20 MP selfie snapper, and a 3,430 mAh battery. It will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8895 SoC, paired with either 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB storage.
The smaller Meizu 15 will come with a 5.46-inch Full HD display. It might be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. The RAM/storage options are the same as for its bigger sibling, but the battery capacity takes a hit because of the size constraints – it’s 2,940 mAh in the Meizu 15.
There are also rumors of a lite variant joining the 15-lineup, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Oddly enough, the follow-up Meizu 16 “ultra-flagship” series will apparently come in August, according to Huang Zhang, the company’s founder.
